Barbera d’Alba Superiore is a DOC wine made from Barbera grapes. Robust, intense and full-bodied, it reaches its finest expression after ageing. Vinification takes place in small steel tanks, followed by at least four months' ageing in oak barrels.
Barbera d’Alba DOC Superiore is produced in the Langhe in the province of Cuneo, around the town of Alba, hence its appellation. The vineyards are located at 250-400 metres above sea level, in marly-clay soils.
Barbera d’Alba Superiore is a DOC wine with a beautiful deep ruby red colour, suggesting a full body. The nose reveals fruity and spicy notes, like cloves, red fruit and plums. Intense and velvety, with hints of cherry and a long, persistent finish.
